Where to begin… there are many chapters to my story. I’ll try to condense it lol! I was born in California But, moved to VA when I was 8yrs old and been here ever since. I have endured many struggles in my life from sexual & verbal abuse starting at a very young age, and my mom was mentally ill during my four years in high school. So my brother and I were moved around to different families while she was hospitalized during that time. Had to grow up fast to care for my brother. This led me down a road I am so happy to be in recovery from… drug addiction. I remember waking up one day and saying it was enough! Enough being the victim and feeling sorry for myself, so I got help. Years of help to get me to where I am at today. I have a beautiful family, hubby I have known for almost 27yrs, a daughter, and a son. I put myself through Massage Therapy School & Esthetics School. I wanted to give back to people and help them feel good about themselves inside and out! I now own my own Spa which is a dream come true! I have learned many lessons in life some of them a few times over haha! I keep my circle small these days and believe in quality over quantity. I live every day at least try to, to better myself for my family and me. I love what I do for a living and feel blessed to have found my calling. I try to stay in a positive state of mind although not always easy as I am very hard on myself. Being a mom and wife definitely did not come with a manual, but with that, I love hard, I’m compassionate, loyal, honest, understanding, and committed! I’m a free spirit at heart, and I have finally embraced that and don’t let others control my emotions by beating me down. I’m a survivor. I realized you have a choice to be happy or not. I am choosing happy, to show love where others show hate, to be supportive of my circle but not enable. I’m a work in progress… and that’s ok with me!
